which learning resources I can recommend.
Because this is an important & interesting question,
I will give you my opinion on this.
HTML + CSS:
- Read: MDN: HTML
- Read: MDN: CSS
- Read: Web Design in 4 minutes
MDN is a great resource to get into learning.
Sometimes they use a lot of tech speech,
but later on you want to read a lot of documentations,
therefore you want to familiarize yourself with tech speech.
I would do all the stuff in exactly that order,
because first you do some small practical stuff (JS in 14min),
then you learn the theory behind it (MDN JS),
then you build a lot of practical stuff (PracticalJS)
and finally you do all over again in a great course (JS Bootcamp).
- Read: General: You don't know JS
- Watch: Frontend: React: The Beginner's Guide to React
- Watch: Frontend: React: The Complete React Developer Course
- Watch: Backend: NodeJS: The Complete Node.js Developer Course
This is my prefered order, but I totally understand that some people don't get motivated by the Algorithms & Data Structures stuff.
To my younger self: Learn the Algorithms & Data Structures first. It will save you a lot of times afterwards.
WEB DEV: All in one
If you want to do some comprehensive course and not 10 different ones, I would go with this one.

Great list! However, as a beginner I found myself often captured in what's known as the tutorial swamp. Udemy courses are a nice way to get some first grasps about a certain topic, but for digging deeper into the concepts behind that and to gather real experience & expertise, I heavily recommend to use text-based resources to extract useful informations for building your own projects. I certainly can across FullStackOpen and think it's one of the very best resources for advanced web development!
Louis just want to a massive thank you for posting fullstackopen here.
Without your suggestion i would have most likely never have found such a well presented and up to date resource.
It's an absolutely fantastic I've spent last few hours totally engrossed in the content.
You're welcome, that's what DEV is all about! 😊
thanks for your opinion.
Nowadays, I go straight to the docs of the stuff I want to learn, because usually I get some insights about the problem (and the solution) the author wants to solve.
I discovered Full Stack Open the other day and I really like it, because it is up-to-date (e.g. React Testing Library). I don't like that it is text-based, because in my experience this leads to a lot of copying & pasting of finished code, without actually typing and thinking about the code.
I'll definitely take a closer look at it.
Hi! Great list! Might I add this resource I use a lot in training fresh graduates and/or Junior Developers: Nodeschool
Thank you very much for this informative and wonderful post to grow as a web developer, such as from the grassroots. I liked your all mentioned resources to learn and master them as a web developer. I am going to refresh some of them and dig more to master them.
Once again, Thanks. Keep on posting.
I'm happy I could convince you.
You could blog about your progress,
I would read it!
Thank you Miku!
Not quite a blogger but I'll definitevely get involved in the near future. In the meantimes, I took the first 14 min course twice then discovered on Twitter this new Google app: grasshopper.app/ Perhaps, you could add it to your list or just have a look at it :)
I will have a look at it, thanks!
Huge fan of Andrew Mead’s courses. Wish he’d do one for Vue!
yes, I really like his teaching style!
Thank you, informative article.
I really like your site girlsugames
Keep up the good work.
Thank you, you can say it built from the scratch with PHP POD and still updating with new features and enhancements.
The most attractive thing is that the site only load in 1.74 seconds _ working on making it load a bit faster :(
Around 80% of your transfered data are images,
there is only the
favicon, that is quite big and can get shrinked (e.g. by tinypng.com). But I think the images get cached anyway.
My 2 (3) cents:
What about this site ?
I like it so much....
Can't recommend this course enough for anyone starting to learn fullstack dev at 2019 fullstackopen.com
